"Must you also weary my God?"
In exasperation, the prophet cries out,
Listen, O house of David!
Is it not enough for you to weary men,
must you also weary my God?
In today’s Gospel (Luke 1:26-38), the Lord offers someone something and the person says,
Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word.
How often do we turn God down, choosing instead our own paths?
How often do we try to weary God?
May God Himself help us to be more like Mary and to say
May it be done to me according to Your word.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, me merciful to me – a sinner.
